I'm not a TMF staffer, but I'll take a shot at it... if you had composed your post as follows:
In a nutshell, it works like this: If a highly compensated employee (e.g. $104,000 annually) chooses to contribute at a rate of 15% per pay period, they will reach the $10,500 legal limit after the 17th pay period out of 26, after which they will no longer contribute. Their match of dollar for dollar up to 3% of pay will amount to $2,160, and they will have missed out on the 3% match for the last 8 pay periods of the year.
Then I think it would have looked like you wanted -- but I couldn't figure out all of your column headings.
The main thing is, you have two choices when formatting a TMF post:
(1) either use the "table" option, and provide ALL your own line breaks, or
(2) use the <pre> and </pre> tags around the part you want to show up in tabular form, and type the rest of your post, free-form.
